Emotionally dysregulated clients: Supporting Families - 4. Walking the Middle Path

United Kingdom

 In addition to the 4 core modules of DBT: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness, a skills set focusing on Family Support has been developed called Walking the Middle Path.


This video provides a brief practical idea of this skills set. It is clear that emotion dysregulation in any member of a family puts enormous pressure on the family as a whole.


A practical framework for creating space for other people’s points of view is incredibly useful. This framework also helps practice what it is like to accept and validate a view that you do in fact not agree with. This also practically helps to separate validating feelings, without that meaning that you agree to the action that would match those feelings.
